Whale plunges us deeper into the collective seas of planetary consciousness
Fine tuning our eardrums into the life-beat of Mother Earth

Their sonar links us in to Her planetary heartbeat
Good medicine to meditate on our breathing patterns
Especially when feeling stressed about the weather

Whales are dedicated to their family
Their sonar is akin to an acute form of empathy

In the sense that we can learn to listen in
and hear subtle stirrings inside with relationship to self and others

This process increases our sensitivity

Drinking in deep, relaxed belly breathing
Is what’s on tap for a clear walking meditation

Leaving behind a clean wake for others to follow in

What a long Winter season it has been for many folks blanketed by snow
Cold as it is now, a powerful Spring Eclipse season lies on the horizon

Yang energetic intensities are rising
Light and dark forces are moving toward equal dance steps together again

Masculine and Feminine energies will be in equal alignment with one another
Come Spring Equinox in later March

While trekking the great outdoors,
Mother Nature reveals Her feminine power

My oh my, can’t She be unpredictable?
When riding out these changing tides,
It is helpful to tune into the echo chiming in to go with the flow

Picture Whale cresting near a shoreline
beneath the bounty of a mountain range

Can you hear a natural conversational exchange . . .
“Some people can hear themselves think amidst the din of everyday life.
I however need the mountains.”

Love is the answer

Whale blows steam into the waters of an egalitarian New Earth
May our medicine shields release and let-go of
dualities and demonizing perceived enemies

Picture holistic co-creative communities
Clean energy, drinking water, elections
and access to quality health care

The Empire relaxes its militaristic grip
On our Global Village

Good-bye Captain Americas
A Super Power fades away
Peace out to identifications with war-like ideology

Freedom is as freedom does

Are you ready to let go of self-crucifixion?
Might as well come up for air
Instead of drowning in repetitive mental tapes by the voice in the head

The time is now to listen to our “better angels”
So that we tap into our soul potential

See you further on up the trails,

Hawk swoops in this week
Circling our dreams
Visionaries of air
Are these spirited winged creatures

Akin to Mercury
Weaving creativity into our daily living
Awakening conversations with the Universe
Remembering magical songs like

We Shall Overcome

Even if this mantra feels like a Twilight Zone retrograde

Hawk medicine signals us to become observant of
Obvious signs lurking beneath shadowy surface realities
Shedding Light on synchronicity

Pay attention!

If only we can open-up to being clear channels right now
We can discern our intuitive hits
Amplifying our capacity for accurate reception of Universal truths
from illusionary realities

Imagine what a beautiful world we could live in
When the political will of intention
Reveals an abundant air of clear skies with clouds of shared resources
From neurons to neighborhoods

Supporting the rising tide of the overwhelming majority
Watering a critical mass of co-creativity
We work toward a common sense goal of mutual aid and respect

A heightened sense of awareness
Conjures up increased responsibility
to see the big picture
without getting lost in pesky details

Don’t get lost in ungraceful emotional reactivity and fixed ideas
Let those stories become introverted opportunities for self-reflections
Might as well allow for personal discovery of your judgments and positions
Be mindful of your feelings and keep them with self-control
rather than being a victim by giving away your power to someone else at close range

Like the light of Grandfather Sun
Seeing with a keen eye and bold heart
Hawk helps us know when to grab an opportunity
or hold discernment of hazards that counteract our freedom of flight
so that we remain grounded

Teaching temperance
Knowing harmony in moderation
We become strong and powerful
Through a soft and gentle way of being

Traveling with Horse this week
Saddling up with power in freedom

Do you need to take more risks and embrace freedom?

With attached price tag of responsibility
Merely the capacity to respond to any given situation

Is your independence being restrained?

Galloping past the dark horse of Winter Solstice this week
into blazing novel frontiers on New Moon

Is it time to embark on a physical or mental journey?

Horse whisperings gradually coax back the light

What seeds do we want to plant, water and give birth to
Come spring then blossoming into summer?

Until we know Nature’s energetic balance of
masculine and feminine at Spring Equinox
Tis the season to remember to balance work and play
Not forgetting the importance of rest and down time

May we heed the spirit of the holidays
without getting lost in the mania of consumerism

Are you doing your part to assist civilization within your own environment?

We temper our sexuality and emotional darker edges

Are you adequately expressing your sexuality?

Please consider lightening up with humor and empathy

With meditation, we enter into a judgment free zone
Where we remember our old selves
by walking in the footsteps of our past lives

Are you honoring what this civilization has given you?

Picture fading old trails of multinational corporations
Greedily protecting good old boy maximum economic profits . . .
Growing into New Earth friendly businesses of sustainable harmonic living
in political alignment with Nature

Instead of getting sucked into the excitement of a potential opportunity
Consider sitting with that feeling and watch the impulse to act pass by for a spell

Are you feeling unsure or indecisive about which direction to take your life?

We have discussed the interplay between order and chaos
Is sacrificing our freedom worth the security of a police state?

When we practice letting-go of our attachments
We get in touch with our deeper soul light
that radiates outward for others to experience

See you further on up the trails,

We stand in the courts wit the clowns
A Coyote sits on the outskirts of town
Farmers dry soil yielded a shortage of crops
But resilient cannabis got some peeps busted by the cops
Doctors swooped in with legal Eagles from the State
Serving subscriptions of prescriptions done changed our fate
And those IRS Feds still squander my tax rate

We stand on the doorstep of an Aquarian Age
Nanosecond transactions got the market in a manic rage
Alien technology drains water and jobs
Corporate media floods our teles with opportunistic commercial mobs
Mental health experts called in to assess intra-psychic states
Serving opinions of self fulfilled fate
And in spite of our differences honey, I’m glad you’re my mate

Changing tides across fruited plains
Got pundits reptilian grins bickering bout climate change
Inflated taxes and budget cuts got folks in a rage
But sharing our resources means our survival in a New Age
FEMA came to town to clean up a chaotic state
But survivalist paranoia is stuck in its hate
And those IRS Feds still squander my tax rate

Big Brother is here to preserve our Republic
Power to the People is a mantra to the public
Meditation is key to sit with what is
Reflection of Self is our spiritual biz
Picture a waterfall to clear your mind
Clean self-care ritual to help you unwind
And in spite of our differences honey, I’m glad you’re my mate

Is it the word of the Lord?
To obey thy master . . .
Do as I say but not as I do . . .
Children should be seen but not heard.

Will the silent majority remain comfortably numb?
Slowly simmering as the words echoed by an
Imitation Christ representing a mere manifestation of deception.
Behavioral patterns behind the curtain reveal an antithesis of
His True actualized Self.

Commercial illusion of a Republic with democratic ideals –
Cloaked behind shadowy expanded imperialism
Propagating the powers that be
President Gas shuffles his feet for
combustible special interests excesses.

Perceived by the Hidden Hand as children –
Methodically indentured in blissful ignorance
Questioning the rebellious motivation of the rascal multitude
Fomenting calculated defiance and retaliation

Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt

Alternatively, some minority patriots
Dubiously challenge this manufactured illusion
Painfully perceiving now apparently
Disconnected kernels of truth
Via siphoned regurgitated rhetorical chunks of puke

Raising our fists to the drumbeat of accountability and responsibility
From Leadership’s professed gospel of Freedom.

Seeking Liberty
and Empowerment through equal access
As we ascend from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave

Power to the People

Inner Peace is as Inner Peace does

Belief in mediation for self-reflection . . .

Allowing us to sit with what is –
rather than exit with denial or aggression.

You are the quarterback
Your team is down
It’s fourth and everything
Last play of the game

(We’re in the 11th hour – we are the one’s we’ve been waiting for)

Coach makes the call
You disagree with his signal
and so does the team
One cohesive unit
one chain, eleven links
As strong or as weak
As every link

Loved one’s watching
Local press reporting
Two communities cheering
and maybe more
Spectators galore

You are a leader in action
Your actions speak louder than words

Call the command
Or command the field
Your team depends on your leadership
You are the quarterback

Do you hear the powerful ocean chime in to the rocky coast . . .
“Will you allow my waters to soften your edges?”
Sounds deafening to fine-tuned soulful acoustics.

Movers, shakers and nanosecond market exchangers –
Please proceed with caution and take stock in
Spirited winds of change at your backs . . .
Release Imperial urges to weaponize technological advances.

May our collective soul heed the heartbeat of Whale’s memory
Of our planetary consciousness . . .
Submerged beneath us is their wisdom –
Swimming with our living history . . .
Deeper than His story –
Of Manifest Destiny.

Tinder boxes are a burning bush when ignited by rising yang-masculine sunlight
May we heed the call back of inner peace and awaken
Conversation with our Higher Selves
During this powerful Eclipse season . . .

Letting go of primal violent urges to pound our war chests.

Reworking our resourceful intention by building egalitarian community
And channeling equal access to resourceful Liberty . . .

Do you see clean energetic causeways?
Gradually melting away our internal rigidity . . .

Freedom from boxed in programs of mind controlled psychic resistance . . .
Might we embrace fiery Aries inspirational impetus to
Get up, stand up and do the right thing?

The survival of our species depends on hitting musical high notes
By singing in the key of positive silver lining harmony –
Coupled with a mystical-scientific convergence of cross-pollination co-creativity!

We remember when liberal curiosity makes friends with conservative restraint
Live and let live
Releasing our coat of armor reveals graceful beauty –
Casting an enchanting spell on one another

Surfing Life’s ebb n’ flows or swimming against the currents

Breathe in the freedom to weave in playful Dreamtime
Breathe out stagnant work habits
Everything old is new again
Imaginative presence is mental martial arts

Colorful eating for the Chakras burns clean energy

Group psychology is a tool to free our minds
Let us not forget
the same systems that oppress can liberate

“We are all Indians . . . Our spirits should be puncture proof”
All are deserving of infinite universal blessings
From polyracial-ethnic cross-pollination that society boxes into white and black labels
(and) those oriented otherwise
Being Native American is a state of consciousness
Thank you to our Elders that have stuck with us

Who am I?
I am all in just being with what is
When Earth cries an acid river of tears
we hallucinate a collectively designed nightmare

Listening to the Great Void of winter
Chinese-Lunar New Year, Groundhog Day and Imbolc passing
Moving us over the hump toward Spring Equinox

Plan of action is a fluid guide for manifestation

Naming and owning our feelings allows mutuality in
authentic conversational partnership

Marching to our becoming collective soulful drumbeat
Gradually gaining gentle and powerful momentum like water
Restructuring our thoughts into positive affirmations

Embracing our unique eccentricities –
Make Love not war with your individuality
Respectfully in community

Imagine . . .
Endangered species supporting one another in mutuality –
old stories posit humans being descendants of wolves
Wolf government is a complex balancing act
of hierarchical pecking order and democratic principles . . .
Does this harmonic convergence sound familiar?

dinosaur developmentally delayed paradigm that asserts:
“bad for people, good for business”
This fool’s gold quackery is bad medicine even for
the movers and shakers at the top of the food chain
Equanimity in business is good practice (win-win)

Naughty bullies need love too
There are no enemies brothers and sisters

Way to break the mold Pete Seeger
Your Spirit is music to my ears

The shroud of the Empire lurks within and without.
But inner peace still lies waiting beneath the dark n’ stormy surface . . .
Let go of “things and thoughts that get in the way of realizing
your true nature and best self.”

Allowing folks we care about to evoke our better angels
Without demonizing the devil we know.

Giving ourselves permission to receive energizes us to give.
Accepting love from others opens up energetic connections.
Feeding our hearts for Celestine soul amplification . . .

Co-creating space-time to reset our internal gauges to
Shift our attitudinal gears.
Revealing pleasantly surprising changes in latitude . . .

We are all dealt a deck of cards.
It’s what we do with the deck that makes it magical.

As adults, we have the opportunity and challenge –
To look at our outer world through . . .
The wonderful eyes of a child again –
With a mindful position of curiosity and empathy.

Fixed ideas are roadblocks to novelty . . .
Surrendering to universal flow is true freedom . . .

Making friends with our whimsical and intuitive selves . . .
Balancing our heads and our hearts in one rhythmical drum beat . . .

Taking a leap of faith requires the courage to
Let go of our systemic control issues . . .

Set a daily ritual of harmonic intention.
Create an organic psychic energy field of solitude.
When feeling introverted in extroverted situations
To feel security within our private selves . . .

Cumulative effect of “conscientiousness of our gifts”
Empowers us to be good stewards.
Breathe in blue skies (life) and breathe out gray skies (death).
And indulge in your daydreams for a short spell . . .
Return to ground control by picturing yourself as a
Wise Old Tree with strong roots growing deeps within Gaia . . .

Classroom Mothership Earth is our teacher and we are Her students here to learn.
What a pain in the Yin . . .

Slavery was justified as good business, while making us sick!
With food production chain, we are still enslaved with dirty planetary maladies.
Justifying the unjustifiable by parroting a “business as usual” mantra

Feed your soul a daily portion of self-care . . .
Feng Shui your home and work space.

Now that is good business practice.

Out on the trails last week, the sound of Catbird amplified our communication skills. The week prior to that, Duck helped us paddle through our emotional waters. This week, our spirits are soaring with the powerful mage wings of Bald Eagle, yet keeping a strong Earthbound connection with its powerful talons. Meditation on Eagle is powerful energy to consume for our spirit, soul and Life’s journey. Its medicine reveals seeing from all directions and resurrects the sound of “Instant Karma”. Great Spirit reveals itself in mysterious ways. With an Eagle Eye view, we see deep within our inner tapestry and observationally hover over and glimpse into what presents itself and needs refinement in our soul’s development. During this process of reflection, we develop heightened senses of vision and hearing, both physically and spiritually. Eagles are predators and help keep balance in Nature. As such, they effectively hunt and fish in water. Not coincidentally, water and fish symbolize psychic phenomena. In the spirit of that, consumption of Eagle facilitates our capacity to work with emotions, psychic space and consciously navigate spiritual realms with greater effectiveness.

On the surface of Mother Earth, we really need Eagle to feather the collective ripple of our Planetary consciousness. There appears to be a political movement to roll back legal justification for the Empire to use drone strikes in Afghanistan and Iraq by some of our friends on Capitol Hill. But there are mixed messages being reported on whether the Attack of the Drones will end anytime soon. Will we see an exit strategy to bring our troops home? Will we support their reintegration into our society when they return? Will the US flood Syria with more weapons to ignite Middle Eastern “tinder boxes”, or show restraint in that region by increasing humanitarian aid and supporting the same of Russia, China and Iran? Will we press Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel in that light? The Obama administration recently lifted “consumer communication tools” in Iran, but sanctions on medicine reaching its citizens continues. The US Justice Department is arguing in court that “vulture funds threatens US policy regarding international debt restructuring.” The World Bank appears to maintain its “business as usual” commercial that says what is good for business is bad for our Planet vis-a-vis encouraging countries to “deregulate in harmful ways in order to get better funding.” Whacking already miserly social services, education and health care is self-destructive for everyone, including the upper echelon. Moving onward, we raise our fists to the beat of Equal access to concrete services! And what about our extraterrestrial and underwater brothers and sisters? Are you reading between the lines regarding what the “man behind the curtain” is slowly unveiling on the corporate media?

Waking up to Eagle’s teachings is a clarifying reminder that we accept an increasing responsibility for our spiritual path. We are ready to see opportunities with our vision and snatch them up with our talons. Our efficacy to use our voice improves, knowing when to express and when to yield in authenticity and respect. We feed our soul with Eagle in the sense that we heed the callback of Spirit, by allowing it to radiate through our Being organically. The voice of Spirit likes to speak to us through the “Universal Pillars of Love and Truth”, rather than the ego’s trickery of negative and discouraging messages. Are you willing to legalize freedom and follow the joy that your heart desires? As a spiritual Being having a human experience (or otherwise), do you see that you are “of the Earth, but not in it?” “As more and more people see from these new viewpoints, we collectively end an old world of fear, illusion, and mistrust. We come together to build our Aquarian Age.”

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
